Relationship with Finance II
Topic: Money Matter
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Matthew 6:24 KJV)



Money doesn’t have a power to rule over us. Unfortunately, some of us have caught up with making more money whether through the business, television ministry, marketing, and selling yourselves to the night club. Nowadays, we hear about a small microchip that goes through the skins of pets and can tell the information about that pet and tell the price. And then this process will go to the human’s skin to keep their personal information in the skins. This plan already has been launched in some countries. Revelation 13 talks about how the antichrist would appear to the world as the millions of people would take the mark of beast in their right hands or foreheads.


We cannot make the money as our master. As I said in the pervious message, many America churches have so caught up with marketing their churches. Bishop TD Jakes operates two or more mega churches in different locations that would cost $1 million or more. Making more churches or becoming a world famous preacher doesn’t make us to have access to Heaven.


Giving our money to our local churches or communities are the biblical principles. We tithe to our local churches because God commanded for us to do so and so we help our churches to keep running to help members and others as well. One thing we should not do is putting the church as marketing place. Remember Jesus was disappointed when He saw that Jerusalem Temple was like the marketing place (Mark 11:15-19). Our churches should be a house of prayer (Mark 11:17) and not a house of thief.

We need to set differences between God and money. There is right way or wrong way to handle our money. We can be fallen in love with our money, but it doesn’t satisfy us in all the way. There’s limited that the money can do, but if we have our relationship with God, then there is no limit to break our relationships with Him.

Relationship with Finance I
Topic: Money Matter

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. (I Timothy 6:10 KJV)

Have we noticed that many people are in bankrupt more than ever? Let’s look on the recent entertainment news on Britney Spear or Robby Ray. They began their careers good from start, but as they got into more fame and fortune, their individual life began to fall apart.

How do we handle our finance in right way?

I’m not going to say that give our money to televangelists or any media. Many preachers teach us if we give our money to ministries, God will bless us with hundredfold. This may be trued, but God will not only bless us with money. Instead, He will bless us in every part of our lives.

God doesn’t need our money every week, but He wants us to make time for Him. He wants to talk to us and spend His quality time with us. We sometimes make our schedules as busy for ourselves and then there is no time for God to intervene with us. Sadly, many ministries are making more money than ever rather than building a kingdom for God. Ministering through media technologies or building bigger churches would be great, but they would become useless without the eternal purpose for the ministries.

 

Here are some suggestions to use your money and time wisely:

  • Tithe your money to your local church rather than give your money to several other churches.
  • Give your time to God each day before beginning and ending of your day.
  • Interact with your people outside the church.
  • Encourage and help other people.
  • Find at least one stable job.
  • Do not rely on your credit cards to meet your bills.
  • Pay your bills promptly.
  • Spend time with your family each day.

God wants us to focus on everything in our lives rather than just for money. But He also wants us to focus on Him everything we are doing. We lost a great passion to have quality time with God. What are we going to do about it?
